Since Friday’s are shaping up to be Dungeons and Dragons post days, I may as well spend some time sharing some of my D&D lessons learned with you. I have a YouTube channel where I put some D&D tutorials and general commentary, but I haven’t posted anything to it in over a year. It’s still out there if anyone is interested in watching me be a complete goofball.
That said, I’d like to turn this Friday post into a recurring D&D Q&A deal, so if anyone has any questions they’d like for me to tackle or subjects they’d like for me to discuss, send them along – either in the comments section or by using the contact form on the blog.
I’m still relatively new to D&D5e, but each session brings something new both as a player and a Dungeon Master. I DMd the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set starting in 2016 and that campaign lasted about 6 months. I’m currently DMing my first homegrown campaign and we’ve been going strong since early December and I expect it to stretch into March. I’ve also created and DMd several one-shots along the way as well.
So, let me know what questions you have! Some topics might be, just based on my own experiences so far:
- How to handle difficult players
- The different types of playing styles
- How to create a balanced and fun encounter
- Understanding Challenge Ratings
- Creating sessions without combat
- How to DM combat
- How to play in a combat encounter
- How to create a fun one-shot
Those are just a few potential topics off the top of my head, but I’ll let the gamers who read this blog, point me where they want me to go.
